We Did It! Revierderby Meetup in Santa Monica Leads to Victory!

The biggest match of the season so far. The biggest Derby in the world. We all had to get up and out for a 6:30am meetup at The Cock ‘n’ Bull in Santa Monica. Best showing ever!

I told Marion that I was going for a Kloppo 2014 look lately. She brouderby_hat_editght me a hat from the BVB shop in Dortmund. Still haven’t gotten the glasses just right, but someday…

Marion also arrived in the winning vehicle of all time, The most beautiful BMW I have ever seen. This car outclassed anything in the parking lot.

As for the match: more excitement than was needed. Ginter to Kagawa was magic. Ginter header was unstoppable. Auba Batman Goal came at exactly the right time. This was a Derby to remember.

Breakfast
Breakfasts going cold after Herne-West tie it up.

Also being celebrated was Armen’s birthday from Saturday. What better celebration than a morning Guinness while Auba scores the winning Goal.

Guinness
OK, we’re going to win this thing. Can concentrate on beer for a moment.

We’ll be back again in two weeks. Stay tuned. Sign up here or follow us on Facebook¬†or Twitter.

 

Finally Defeated – Successful Season Continues

This was our best meetup yet, despite the scoreline. The Bayern LA Fan Club were hospitable and gracious. Altogether, 90 Bundesliga fans in one place. Thanks to Tom and Oscar (photos). We’ll be back in two weeks, still #2 in the Bundesliga, still top of our group in Europa League.

The whole scene. Quite impressive for Los Angeles at 8am on a Sunday.

BVB @ Bayern – Der Klassiker (part 1)

With the Jungs going to Allianz Arena it seems fitting that we drop by the Bayern Los Angeles Club’s house to bring the time honored rivalry to them.

The larger picture is showing Los Angeles and Fox Sports that the Bundesliga is here to stay. We’re hoping that this will be the largest viewing party ever assembled on the West Coast.

For all Westsiders: Bill C will be organizing a train trip from Culver City. Stay tuned.
